Converting 3500lb Axle Hub From Grease to Oil Bath


Can I convert this hub to an oil bath hub?


Expert Reply:

For the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-550-35-K to be converted to an oil bath you will need the Kodiak XL ProLube Kit # XLPROLUBE1980KIT. This will provide you with new caps that have the threaded see through cover to check your oil level. Also new oil seals to replace your current grease seals.

I recommend picking up a spare Hub Body and Cap # xlprolube1980 and some extra Bearing Oil # XLPROLUBE to keep with the trailer in case one of the caps becomes damaged or fails to prevent damage to the bearings.
